Here's a chawan by Im Mann Jae that I picked up on a tea tour of Korea several years ago. Matcha Yugen n the bowl.

While I was searching the Internet for information on another teapot, I found this gorgeous one. Can this actually be used for tea, or is it mainly for decoration purposes? What would this be worth?
I found a similar design (not a teapot) on this website for $270. The teapot however would be cheaper.

Missed this post in January....if the inner pot is intact, yes, could be used for tea. I've got a Somayaki double-walled pot with carved cutouts on the exterior wal, and it works fine for tea.

Most attractive, Janice. Do you hold the hobins with bare fingers?
(I often burn myself with gaiwans; so, I ask.) Really look lovely. Cheers
I just noticed this question today. I can’t hold these hohins with my bare hands unless I’m brewing with low temperature water. I’m adept with a gaiwan, especially when I use the saucer.
